NO eggs in my stuffing. Celery, onion, fresh herbs (parsley, sage, thyme, rosemary), walnuts, poultry seasoning, ground sea salt, ground peppercorns, mushrooms, butter, chicken or turkey stock/broth and herb stuffing cubes.

How about Celery Flakes? That is what I use in my "Stuffing Rice".

My stuffing/dressing is a lot like some of those mentioned. Saute onion and celery in butter until translucent. Add this to dried bread (cubed), along with broth, and seasoning (I usually use poultry seasoning and sometimes a little extra sage). From my mom I learned to add a big dollop of prepared yellow mustard. Then I bake it in a greased casserole dish.

As PF said, you could puree celery and add just for flavor. You could also use celery seed, but that wouldn't be the same.

I am with the oyster-hating group. I have tried oyster stuffing and will never try it again.

Well, I'm not a girl. But I'm all about cornbread stuffing. I like the southwest kind, with roasted peppers and bits of corn.

I grew up in Southern California and always had bread stuffing. Now that I am in South Carolina I have had cornbread stuffing a few times (at friends' or at the school where I taught). The only way I can eat it is if it is covered in lots of gravy.

I have had cornbread stuffing and don't like the texture. It seems to mushy. I like cubes of stuffing. Cornbread stuffing has the texture of pudding to me.

The cornbread stuffing I have had is dry.

Cornbread stuffing haters... seriously?? LOL.

Ok, to avoid a pudding-like consistency, you have to let the cornbread get a little dry, just like the white bread variety.

...try a recipe like this one:
Southwest Corn Bread Stuffing with Corn and Green Chilies Recipe at Epicurious.com

...or this one (though I omit the apples):
Dorothy’s Southwest Stuffing — Holiday Recipe Contest Winner

The peppers are the key, my friends!

This sounds like a bad batch of cornbread "dressing".
Everybody can't make "dressing". They should stick
to stuffing.....

The cornbread stuffing I've tried was either too dry and flavorless, or too mushy and equally flavorless. Even gravy couldn't save it. I too prefer the bread cubes, onion, celery, etc. No eggs or meat ( including oysters!)
